Pieter Schoolwerth

Born in 1970, he lives and works in New York.

He attempts to reverse the digital image processing trend by producing a series of ‘in the last instance’ paintings, in which the stuff of paint itself reappears at the very end only of a complex, multi-media effort to produce a figurative tableau. At the end, painting get the last word. His work expresses our scattered attention to reality in the era of digital multi screens.
